General Settings - CyberSEO Pro
March 27, 2012

General Settings

Use “General Settings” to adjust global behavior of the CyberSEO Pro plugin. These options are dynamic and reversible, so all the changes get reversed back when the appropriate option is disabled.

CyberSEO Pro General Settings

RSS pull mode

The RSS pull mode can be set to “auto” and “by cron of manually” modes. In “auto” mode the plugin will try to pull the feeds using pseudo cron, which triggers then somebody opens your site in the browser. This is the most unreliable method because it may cause post duplicates. Also if you want to pull the feed every certain period of time (say every hour), you need to use your server cron. Also this method is much more reliable. Thus the “cron” mode is highly recommended. Read more about cron here.

Important: Always use “cron mode” to avoid post duplicates. The “auto” mode is a crutch to be avoided.

Open Links in a New Window

Use this option to make all links open in the new window (target=”_blank”).

Use rel=”nofollow”

When enabled, the rel=”nofollow” attribute will be added to every link in posts and pages.

Use rel=”referrer”

When enabled, the rel=”noreferrer” attribute will be added to every link in posts and pages.

Encrypt links

When enabled, all external links will be encrypted. This feature can be used to cloak your affiliate links etc.

Post images

Enable this option to dynamically show or hide images when post is displayed. It maybe useful when you want to hide the 1st post image when it’s the same as featured one. This option can be used to solve the “duplicated image” problem, described here. The following options are available:

  • show all images
  • hide first image
  • hide all images but post thumbnail
  • hide post thumbnail

Keep downloaded images

When enabled, it preserves all the downloaded images and videos when an appropriate syndicated post is permanently deleted when you click “Empty Trash” in the WordPress dashboard or when the before_delete_post hook is triggered.

Link to source

Use this option to link the post titles to the actual sources instead of their local copies.

Morphing RSS Host Mode

Use this option to enable the Morphing RSS Host Mode, which allows one to generate unique feed content with Spintax and built-in synonymizer.

Full text extractor URL

Here you can specify the URL of the Full Text RSS extractor. The Full-Text-RSS script is not a part of CyberSEO Pro distributive. It’s an optional script which can be used by CyberSEO Pro as a 3rd-party service in accordance to GPL.

Preset directory

An absolute path (not an URL!) to a folder with user-defined presets at your own server.

Instagram session ID

Allows you to set Instagram session ID, which will be used to scrape Instagram user posts. Please check this manual on how to get it.

Facebook c_user

Allows you to set Facebook c_user, which will be used to scrape Facebook pages, profiles and groups. Please check this manual on how to get it.

Facebook xs

Allows you to set Facebook xs, which will be used to scrape Instagram pages, profiles and groups. Please check this manual on how to get it.

Amazon associate tag

Enter your Amazon associate tag here. Associates earn commissions by using their own websites to refer sales to Amazon.com. To get a commission, an Associate must have an Associate tag. The Associate tag is an automatically generated unique identifier that you will need to get paid for sales.

Disable feed duplication control

When this option enable, the CyberSEO does not check the feed URL uniqueness, so the same feed can be added more than once.

Max execution time

The default PHP execution time limit at your server is usually set to 30 seconds only. On the other hand, some content sources like Amazon product search pages, Facebook pages, Instagram pages or those feeds that use the Article Forge service, require sufficiently more time to be processed. If the default time limit exceeded, the server aborts the CyberSEO Pro execution and the contingent just not get added. Please use this “Max execution time” to set the PHP execution time necessary to process all your feeds.

Proxy list

Here you can paste your proxy list. One proxy per line in the following format: IP:PORT or USERNAME:[email protected]:PORT

Shuffle proxies

Shuffle the proxy list every time the plugin tries to connect some another host.

Enable debug mode

Enable WordPress debug mode for the whole site, so all PHP errors, notices and warnings to be displayed. This is likely to modify the default behavior of PHP which only displays fatal errors and/or shows a white screen of death when errors are reached. It is not recommended to enable this option on live sites; they are meant for local testing and staging installs.

Complete uninstall

Enable it if you want to remove all CyberSEO Pro data on plugin delete. Don’t enable it if you want to keep your feed settings etc in WordPress database even when the CyberSEO Pro plugin files are physically deleted from your server.
